Goofs

When Henri gives John his phone, he informs him that he'll be calling every hour John is on his own to make sure he's okay, and if John doesn't pick up, Henri will know something is wrong (implying he'll assume the Mogs have attacked John and will come looking for him). During dinner at Sarah's, John reluctantly surrenders his phone after noticing three missed calls from Henri. Despite the fact that John had not answered his phone for three hours, Henri does nothing about it, and does not even mention it at all afterward. See more »

Good Show
20 February 2011 | by utchazSee all my reviews

I was thinking this would be filler for a dull afternoon. Indeed it was but I was also surprised to find I really enjoyed it. We also had the pleasure of watching it on iMax so that makes just about anything a little better. If you want to enjoy the evening then go see this one. You'll see some good acting and decent new actors. Give it a chance and I think this might be the next good "series" of movies you'll like. I say series because they left this one wide open to find numbers 5, and 7-9. I can easily see a whole trilogy or more just waiting for this one to make enough money to get it going. Although without some decent advertising they aren't going to get that... :(
